September Challenge - Autumn Wildlife

Good morning all,

Today we have a new challenge for you, it's our September challenge and it's 'Autumn Wildlife'.  Any IndigoBlu animal, bird, butterfly stamp etc will do, we'd just like to see your take on this theme.  If you don't have any of those stamps, you can always stamp your Indigoblu pattern's or backgrounds and die-cut them into animal or butterfly shapes!  Think outside the box..

So first we need to congratulate our Random Winner from August's challenge - All things Bright and Beautiful.
Congratulations Amanda, we will be in touch shortly to arrange your prize.

Our Top 3 this month, as chosen by the DT, and who get a Guest Designer spot in our Challenge reminder post are:

1. Carolyn's Creations
2. Leanne C Harris
3. Pat Moore

Congratulations to you all, we will be in touch shortly.

Now for the inspiration from our very own DT, and our fab winner from August, Sheila, who has created this beautiful piece for us:

Sheila had this to say:
It was amazing to win the IndigoBlu blog challange and been able to add to my IndigoBlu stash.  I used the country house for my design card as it was one of my prize choices it's a stamp that's for all seasons.

Sheila doesn't have a blog, but does log in to the IB blog every day, and is a loyal IndigoBlu fan, so please leave her lots of love in your comments below, I know she will see them and appreciate them all.

And here are our brilliant DT's pieces, just love these!  And there is a very sneaky peek of a new stamp here - can you tell which one it is?


We have prizes up for grabs each month,  Indigoblu stamps of your choice as follows:

3 options to choose from:
1: 2 Large stamp plates (A5)
2: 4 Small stamp plates (A6)
3: 1 Large and 2 small plates

There’s also the Winner’s Badge, and one for the Top 3, to display proudly on your blog, and the WINNER of the challenge will also be invited to do a GUEST SPOT on a future Challenge Launch post. That’s right, your work will be on the Challenge Blog alongside the Design Team!

Also the Top Three each month (chosen by our lovely DT) will all be invited to do an inspiration piece to be included on the reminder post that goes live mid challenge. So, if you’d like a chance to be featured on the IndigoBlu Challenge Blog get those stamps out and get creating!
You’ll find all the information on how to enter the challenge, the rules (don’t worry, there’s not that many) and get to meet theDesign Team in the tabs on the sidebar.

So all that's left for you to do is... well... get playing and enter!

Best Wishes,
The IndigoBlu Challenge DT Team
& Challenge Winner Sheila.
